TechBridge Announces Class of 2016 Ambassadors

Atlanta, GA – September 24, 2015 – A new class of Ambassadors have been announced for TechBridge, a nonprofit that impacts the community by providing other nonprofits with affordable technology and business expertise.

The TechBridge Ambassadors are a volunteer leadership council that serves as advocates to extend TechBridge’s reach to nonprofits, corporations, individuals and our community at-large. The group consists of professionals dedicated to supporting TechBridge by contributing their time, expertise and a personal financial commitment.

The inaugural Class of 2015 TechBridge Ambassadors left an impactful mark by hosting the inaugural Volunteer Appreciation Reception to recognize the dedication of 75 TechBridge volunteers; spearheading successful campaigns for both Georgia Gives Day 2015 and #GivingTuesday 2015 raising over $10,000 from 85 individual donors; and being the first group to participate in the TechBridge Adopt-a-Nonprofit program by collectively adopting a technology project for The Drake House, a nonprofit that provides short-term crisis housing, education and empowerment programs for homeless single mothers and their children.

After 10 years of volunteering, I’m now a TechBridge Ambassador, which combines my love for people and passion for technology. TechBridge is relentless in their pursuit of enabling nonprofits to maximize their impact. As an Ambassador, we get to be the extensions through which TechBridge can further their outreach, drive impact, and educate others. With TechBridge, you can help others while enriching your soul and having fun.
